Friday: Awesome. (And I think we can all pat ourselves on the back and take some credit, because clearly our universe shifting power of positive thinking Happy Thoughts worked miracles.)
Sunday:...Well...parts of it were awesome. (Two huge thumbs up for Nick Blackburn, back to form). And honestly, when things got decidedly unawesome, I decided to skip the inevitable heartbreak and opted to get nostalgic and watch some season 7 Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs.
Speaking of Season 7 BTVS...Buffy gives a lot of great motivational speeches in that final season. I decided to watch them so I could pick up some pointers for the motivational speech/lecture I need to give to my fantasy Team Awesome. Because, as a team, they decided to S-U-C-K suck suck suck this week. I'm very disappointed in them. They played fine this weekend, but everyone on my team apparently phones it in Monday-Wednesday for some reason. Adjustments have been made. (So everybody cross your fingers that Luke Hochevar's two starts go splendidly this week as he replaces Sir Sidney Ponson in the KC line-up.) Hopefully that will light a fire under them.
I hope all the moms out there had a great day, and I hope tons of funds were made to fight breast cancer. I'm all about being pro-mom and anti-breast cancer.
Speaking of moms....I helped my own mom fill out her All-Star ballots on-line this week. In spite of the excessive amount of Twins lobbying I did, she decided to pick all Royals and Pirates. (Except for Luis Castillo, because she loves him, and Jason Bartlett and A.J. Pierzynski, because I love them.) Her reasoning was that the Twins will get enough votes from me. She wants to make sure the Royals and Pirates get some votes too. She said if they see the voting results, she doesn't want them to be embarrassed. My mom is very thoughtful like that.
